Her win was a foregone conclusion, which feels a bit of a shame because Angela, Emma Thompson and Debra Winger were all outstanding as well (I haven't seen Six Degrees of Separation). It's a shame they were all the same year, given that some of the lead actress categories in that decade were shockingly weak.
I think if What's Love Got to Do With It had come out in 1994, Angela would have won.
I finally saw Blue Sky and I have to say Jessica Lange was amazing. Had Blue Sky been released three years earlier in 1991, I wonder, though, if Lange would have even been nominated considering it was a stacked year with Jodie Foster from Silence of the Lambs, Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon from Thelma and Louise.
I suppose Lange might have replaced Bette Midler in For the Boys or Laura Dern in Rambling Rose.
